VegOut! Partners, July 2018 Edition:
We were so thrilled to have a team from the Michael & Susan Dell Center For Healthy Living take the VegOut! Challenge this month! The mission of the center (“We advance health and healthy living for children and families through cutting-edge research, innovative community-based programs, and dissemination of evidence-based practices.”) much aligns with the mission of Recipe For Success, both hoping to end childhood obesity and encourage healthy habits.
The center also puts an emphasis on workplace wellness, including a Farm-to-Work Program where Animal Farm brings organic produce to their offices weekly. They’ve been offering recipe ideas & shopping tips on their social media channels, while encouraging both employees & others connected with the organization to participate. For the last day of the challenge, they even hosted a salad swap – where faculty & staff brought their favorite toppings to share and try! They were the perfect partners for the farm-focused July Challenge! To see more about them, check out their instagram & website. And if you’re in the Austin area, consider donating or volunteering!
